Excess office donation

This is for the kids, to read someday.  I think they're too young to fully appreciate it now.

Whenever there's a "gift collection" at work for a birthday, retirement, illness, or whatever -- I always put in about three(?) times what "normal" people put in.  (I have a standard amount.)

My reasoning is that my excess donation inflates the total, which then gives the recipient the impression of a greater number of supportive people.  This, presumably, makes the recipient happier, and/or feel more cared for.  This is a good thing.

I'm willing to spend a bit extra, if it makes someone happy.

Would it be bad to let you know that you're just making it more lucrative for Jeremy, who always skims money off the top of the collection? ;/
